We stayed at Rubi's Inn this past weekend (22-24 July). We absolutely loved it and would definitely return. It's a little gem just two mins from the main town. Small, cozy and hidden away. Owned & Operated by the nicest people.

Where to start ? The rooms are immaculate clean The hot shower actually works and you get a minifridge in your own room! And wifi is super fast ! The hotel has stunning views on the bay and its dock .... I saw the best sunsets ever !! The garden has a load of shade under the beautiful almond trees!... More

This place was great. I got warm showers and a clean room for about $20 a day. Rubi was kind, the grounds were clean and safe. I loved sitting the hammock in the evenings. For the price, I don't think there is a better place to get a private room on the island.

Rubi's is quaint and spotless. We loved our room and even without running AC it was comfortable. The hot water works too. The staff is so helpful and the rooms are so clean. Take your snorkel mask as there are neat fish and a small boat sunk right after the end of their pier - so it's easy to spend... More

Great location- very central with lots of restaurant/stores close by. Can't beat being right there by the water- they have a dock with a bench to enjoy the view. Very simple room- though the beds were a bit uncomfortable (due to their age). Clean place. For $20/night, you get what you pay for- simplicity.

My friend and I ended up staying on Utila an extra 2 nights due to the ferry not running (which we didn't complain about because anyone who has been to Utila knows how easy it is to fall in love with!) We found this hotel on our last night, and our only regret is that we didn't find it sooner!... More

Ive been here twice, once years ago when me and my wife got our open water and once last season on our honeymoon in the honeymoon suite. Both times we felt like it was a home away from home. It gives you all the basics for a good price with good people.I would highly recommend the honeymoon suite the sunsets... More

Owners make you feel right at home. Big rooms with fan. Your own bathroom! There's a kitchen you can make use off. Fresh fish if you want. Fisherman comes every now and then. A lot to do if you want it. Walks across the island, canoo rides. Scuba diving, snorkling.

We rented out the honeymoon suite for the gorgous view of the bay! We kept our french doors open all night to hear the water as we slept. Rubi's is in the center of everything. The owners were very helpful and nice. I rented out three rooms for a birthday dinner I was having on the island. I have trouble... More
